GPGPreferences: two encryptions

Tim's Avatar

I use OpenPGP and S/MIME. When I compose a new mail, the encryption defaults to OpenPGP. I want S/MIME to be the default choice, so I don’t have to switch for most emails manually.

A preference for default encryption service setting

    Hey Tim,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    You can make S/MIME your default option. This KB-article explains how to activate this setting.

    Let me know if that worked.

    All the best,
